You mean the front engine mount bolt? I used a regular ratchet and Torx socket, I doubt I could have gotten it with the ktm kit tools.

FYI: With the Power Parts skid plate make sure you use anti-seize on the small skid plate bolts. Aluminum skid plate w/ steel bolts will cause galvanic corrosion and freeze lock the bolts in place.

I couldn't find a 8.5 mm bit either, but the 21/64 is 8.35 mm and jiggles a bit so I ran the tap right in no problem at all. I'm purdy sure the hole must have been drilled already as the tap felt perfect.
